Our little city of less than 7000 people is becoming well-known. Not just for the bluegrass music, but for drug problems. The Roanoke Times had an article on Sunday about the increasing violence and drug use in our city. We have a huge potential to reach out to those struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. As a church, we are looking at ways to partner with some other groups doing addiction recovery ministry. The need is real, and articles like this show us the urgency that we should have in reaching out and sharing the Gospel message of hope.
